Multi-Scale Materials Theory and Simulation Lab
The primary focus of the Multi-Scale Materials Theory and Simulation Lab is research on applying atomistic simulation techniques, such as Monte Carlo methods and molecular dynamics, quantum mechanics, and condensed-matter theory to study materials interfaces.
The lab focuses on technological applications in which innovation hinges on detailed molecular-level understanding. Topics of interest are nanomaterials, wetting, assembly, thin-film and crystal growth, and colloidal interfaces. We are also interested in developing multi-scale simulation methods that allow inclusion of relevant atomic-scale details in macroscopic simulations relevant for engineering design.
Current research focuses in the lab include:
- Thin-Film and Crystal Growth
- Colloidal Interfaces
